ADDIS ABABA –  (BORKENA) – The Addis Ababa City Transport Bureau announced here yesterday that a ban has been imposed on motorcycles and Tuk Tuk, commonly known as Bajajs, out of City streets starting from 6:00 pm late last night.

The message the Bureau released was supposed to address in particular motorcyclists, four-legged and three-legged Bajaj drivers. Accordingly, starting from 6:00 PM on 25 September 2023 until 6:00 AM on Tuesday 10 October 2023, driving motorcycles, four and three-legged vehicles is strictly prohibited.

The City Transport Bureau stated in its message that the ban does not concern bodies that are serving at security and traffic control sectors.
